USVI wave type and board - I'm moving to St. Thomas for a job and am wondering what the waves are like so I can either keep or sell my current board (6'7'' hybrid short board). I've never surfed a reef break, so I can't really guess what sort of shape the wave'll have. I'm thinking of picking up a quad fish in order to have something versatile (looks like there is some power on some days, but on average its a bit mushy?). My only concern is that I might sometimes need more rail if the waves are steep? Any thoughts out there?
Also, any general tips or stories about the USVI would be greatly appreciated - I'm very excited about the move.

localism - nobody in the virgin islands can surf anyways so localism shouldnt exist cause if you suck it makes no difference and agro vibes keep surfers safe in the line up of heavey surf scaring off kooks and keeping quality surfers from getting hurt by idiots crushing sections or not respecting priority so quit bein pussys take off on a bomb get barreled and the locals well be stoked

looking for St Croix local guide - I grew up in Hawaii & Calif and will be visiting my daughter in St Croix in late March. I am 58 yrs old but grew up surfing everyday since I was a tiny kid and know all about localism, protecting your spot,etc. I went through the whole competition thing, mellowed in my twenties then moved away 30 years ago. I live in Minnesota now. I get back to Hawaii occasionally to surf with my friends but my trip to St Croix is to see my daughter and maybe go surf somewhere one day only. I am willing to pay a local guy to take me somewhere mushy and easy to surf. I have no board and may want to just paddle around a lot since I have a blown out knee. I do have a few stories that you may find interesting of the old days in Hawaii. Then again it may just bore you. If interested my wife & I will be staying near Fredricksted at a place called Northside Valley. We will have a car.
